I am 35 yrs old, and have type 1 diabetes for 28 yrs. I have large swollen groin areas which leak a clear fluid every few weeks. There is no pain from the swelling, apart from discomfort when pants are wet. I have had a hernia op on groin in 2003 where I was told it was caused by fatty deposits and wouldn't cause a problem, now it is. I have chronic kidney failure 14% function, until i or hospital find out what the problem is i am unable to get on a transplant list within my local hospital.
